|Summary:||Liberty Lawhead entered the room with her jaw set, looking down from her impress heights into the eyes of a heinous offender who had stomped on the rights of an innocent person. He looked back at her without wavering. He finally dropped his gaze. He had obviously seen the honor in her eyes, honor he could never hope to match. |
When a new girl joins the film club at school the Flakes and Lucky Charms give her a chance, but quickly discover she has major prejudices against Maggie. She first assumes her to be Mexican and insults for that, then when she learns Maggie and her mom are Cuban she insults that - time and time again. The others are trying to show her kindness, but when Sophie's camera is stolen, they reach their limit. What's it going to take for Phoebe to respond to their kindness with kindness of her own?
|Extra Notes:||In Sophie Tracks A Thief, Sophie learns about being too quick to judge others. There are reasons for the way Phoebe behaves and it's important to not judge her just because they don't like her.|
The Sophie series is about a 12 year old girl in 6th, then 7th grade who, along with her friends, the Corn Flakes, is trying to live the way Jesus wants in the midst of middle school drama. Between bullies, grades, parents, siblings, and boys life can be pretty difficult. The Corn Flakes are known for their big imaginations and create videos of the things Sophie dreams up. I highly recommend this series, not just for young girls, but for anyone who wants to be challenged spiritually or just enjoy a great story!
